Jokes on You! summary

My application is called Joke’s On You! (a pun for the phrase “joke’s on you” and also the physical meaning of jokes in your pocket).

My goal for the application is have it be named the ultimate joke book, contains hundreds of the funniest jokes ever heard. I enjoyed reading joke books as a child because I was learning to read, which every kid needs to learn, but in something that made me laugh. 

My application will be targeting ages 6-18 years, which will give me opportunity to inserts jokes of every age appropriateness, and be relatable to the ages set. 

My app will start on a main “start” page, then will direct the user to the “menu” page which will contain the bottons; randomize, categories, favorites, and search, giving the user lots of options of where to direct themselves according to their mood.

My interview with my ideal subject went alright, he understands the use of the app perfectly, and agrees that it is nicely laid out, however, he stated that I should be aiming for a younger demographic, more to young children who read joke books daily.

I think my application would be benefitial for any user to take a break from working 24/7 and to appreciate some tasteful jokes.

Name: Kyle

Age: 16

Location: Toronto

He is a student at The York School, he is an athlete who trains multiple times a week, and a popular kid with his friends. He is a funny kids, who enjoys humorous social media like most kids of this younger generation. He voiced to me that humor helps everyone connect as its spreads good vibes.

The accessibility of humor is easy with big social media sites today, constantly sharing and rebloging information. By creating an application innovators are much more at ease to communicate with the public.

Kyle walked me through his experience of Vine, which is essentially a video based comedy. You start at the home screen, and depending on which users you follow will vary the contents that fill your home page. 

Kyle said he used to love reading joke book a child, which is why I decided to interview him. I connected my Joke’s on You! app to regular appreciated humor such as vine or youtube, to see what interests them most, perhaps a topic or genre of humor. 

He also stated that although he might not find use in the app, that a younger demographic would find it a lot more appealing and interesting.
